Announcing: LibertyLink® GT27™ soybeans for 2019

On the heels of full approval by the Philippines we’re excited to announce that we will have a full line-up of newly approved LibertyLink® GT27™ soybeans for the 2019 growing season. We’ve been talking about this new LibertyLink GT27 soybean trait for a while and are pretty excited to be ready to bring regional farmers access to products with tolerance to both glyphosate and Liberty.

Full approval of the LibertyLink GT27 system opens up new opportunities for farmers struggling with difficult to control and glyphosate resistant weeds in our region,” said Carl Peterson, president of Peterson Farms Seed. “We are really excited to have these new varieties in our product line up for this fall and to provide farmers with an effective, and safe, tool for weed control.”

Proven for this region

We’ve been testing LibertyLink GT27 varieties on regional soils since 2017. In addition to replicated testing, LibertyLink GT27 varieties are also planted in Peterson Farms Seed Grower Observation (GO) Plots throughout the region.

Peterson Farms Seed will offer 8 LibertyLink GT27 varieties this fall ranging from Mid Group 0 to Early Group 2. The 2019 product line-up will be available for order in early August.
